It all started with Stacey's search for the perfect pair of pants. While designing web sites for other fashion designers, she finally decided to stop searching and came up with the idea to make her own.

Nicknamed Staceypants by her friends, she was often found rollerblading through the city in that first pair of bold striped bell bottoms that the collection instantly became famous for.The line gradually grew to become a full lifestyle collection offering everything from party dresses and coats to embellished t-shirts and sweaters, to the pants with the perfect fit that started it all.

Stacey is also expanding into accessories with jewelry and scarves and growing the alice + olivia kids line each season. Stacey incorporates her love of culture, music, art and vintage fashion into each collection, and gives something fresh and edgy to the alice + olivia girl every season.
